Meinl Cymbals Artist Concept Model Matt Garstka 18" Fat Stack Cymbal Stack


Manufacturer's Description

This stack cuts through the mix with a crunchy bite. With no ring the sustain is dry and pleasing to the ear. Its trashy quality is maintained through a wide variety of tensions, with my personal favorite being a light tension that gives its Fat Stack namesake. It functions in my setup mainly as a time keeper, but it also works extremely well with choppy accents. Coupled with a snare it has a great organic hip hop clap sound.
